Why Kettlebells are Great for a Home Gym Workout

When deciding what type of equipment you want to have in your home gym, versatility is one of the number one factors to consider. Since you don’t have as much space at home as you do at the gym, you need something compact that will still make you work. You can do a lot of different movements with a kettlebell including isolation, full-body, and core exercises. You won’t ever have to worry about getting bored with the same workouts.

Kettlebells can be used by everyone regardless of their fitness goals. Gaining muscle, increasing your explosiveness, and losing weight, are all possible with this great tool. The entire family can benefit from having a kettlebell, which is just one more reason why it is a great piece of equipment to have in your home gym.

How to Train With a Kettlebell

When doing a kettlebell workout, you can either count reps or train for time. Which one is better will be based on how much your kettlebell weights and what your goals are. Counting reps will be a lower intensity workout. If you are trying to gain size or you simply don’t want to lose weight, this may be a better option for you. If you want to lose weight or work out with higher intensity, training for time is better. Whichever you choose to do is fine, just make sure you are doing the reps correctly so you can get the best results.
